Gabriel Orozco EXHIBITION – Gabriel Orozco

Tate Modern – Runs to 25th April

“Orozco’s art belongs to an age in which images, people and commodities are no longer rooted in a single geographical location, but are in constant move”.

Gabriel Orozco creates art in the streets, his apartment or wherever he is inspired. Born in Mexico but working across the globe, Orozco is renowned for his endless experimentation with found objects, which he subtly alters. His sculptures, often made of everyday things that have interested him, reveal new ways of looking at something familiar. As a result we have a remarkable diversity of approaches, each stemming from the artist’s focused response to a particular place and time.

Gabriel Orozco is curated by Jessica Morgan, The Daskalopoulos Curator, International Art, Tate Modern, and Iria Candela, Assistant Curator, Tate Modern
